BLOGGING ABOUT BLOGGING

I THINK THESE CAN BE USED
FOR CRITICAL THINKING DEVELOPMENT....
AND MIGHT BE A GREAT ONLINE TOOL TO MENTOR INTERNATIONAL AND MULTICULTURAL COLLEGE STUDENTS.
WHO'D LIKE TO CHAT ABOUT THAT?

Hi Kathi,

Thanks for visiting my blog (bgblogging) and leaving a wonderful comment. It's nice, too, to be invited over here on your blog. Funny you should have linked to BlogHer's Room of Your Own as a place to talk about multiculturalism in the classroom--along with a couple of blogging coleagues, I have proposed one of those slots for edubloggers. I hope you'll be at BlogHer so we can meet and talk about the issues that interest us both.

You might find this blog at Middlebury pretty interesting--it started as part of my colleague's course, Writing Across Differences and has blossomed into a blog about issues of diversity and social justice: dis.course.

The books you mention here and on my blog have influenced my teaching, too. Another colleague of mine (Hector Vila) has written an excellent book about teaching in multicultural inner-city classrooms: Life-Affirming Acts--you'll find it insightful and moving, I think.

I look forward to following along with your blogging.

Sunday morning in the sunny mountains--today the snow is melting!

Thanks so much, Barbara! I suppose the connections among Virginia Woolf and this blogger are idiosyncratic and internal, though it seems perfectly connected in MY head!

One of my favorite retired prof's from Southern Oregon University (was SOSC when I went,)was a Virginia Woolf scholar, and I got the whole genre of women writers (so conveniently overlooked at Stanford's English Dep't when I was there, late Sixties..., from around '80-'85, while I enjoyed my second Master's, which zip-zagged as promotions arrived! (And that sentence did.)

Will look for your colleague's book, and suggest more.

As I have fun and struggle for technical competency, I'm also shaping what I have to say and in what forms. I do like the color and wideness and pea-green "room" as part of tyour message! I'm also peeking into your two colleagues mentioned as Edubloggers, another stitch-together from my head playing on this machine....

Have you ever been "out West"? I know an awful lot about fun, budget places and things to enjoy, so feel free to pass my blogs & name around!

Unfortunately, I'm already committed during BLogHer '06, to my Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication, but what about regional gatherings to follow, in between, etc?

I'm literally living halfway between Seattle and San Diego, or Potrland and SF, so maybe a group can come here (when it's summertime, or autumn).

Again, muichas gracias & I look forward to our chats. (I had a great mentor who helped us look at the deeper constructs of such statements--why do we always futurize in mainstream USA-ian??)

Cheers, ~Kathi
